Archaeology is changing rapidly due to a systemic approach and new analyses that are being applied to more aspects of research. The European Journal of Post-Classical Archaeologies, which since its inception has placed itself at the forefront of this evolution, resumes in its 8th issue the current debate and lines of research on urban archaeology, with case papers from France (E. Lorans, X. Rodier, A.-M. Jouquand; M. Fondrillon, A. Laurent-Dehecq, with E. Morin, X. Rolland), Belgium (Y. Devos, A Degraeve), Italy (E. Castiglioni, M. Rottoli; G.P. Brogiolo; F. Giacomello – winner of the 2018 PCA Award), Spain (A. León) and the Netherlands (B.J. Groenewoudt, R.J. van Lanen). Landscape studies and particularly environmental analyses continue to shed new light on old problems such as the end and transformation of Roman villas, in this case the exceptional complex of Noheda (Cuenca) (M. Valero Tévar). Another line of research concerns funerary archaeology. In this issue L. Lamanna reconstructs the kinship of those buried in an early medieval Italian cemetery (Montichiari, Brescia). Contributions by M. Asolati, M. Kenawi, G. Marchiori on the documentation of coins in archaeological contexts, A. Cosseddu on the Museo Nacional de Arqueología Subacuática of Cartagena (Spain), and by M. Valenti on North American Public Archaeology complete the volume. The project section has been reserved for the ARIADNE project, which aims to make archaeological data more easily discoverable, accessible and re-useable across institutional, national and disciplinary boundaries of archaeological research, of which the second phase (ARIADNEplus) is about to begin.
